A new report speculating whether or not Khloe Kardashian is “already married” to Tristan Thompson is completely bogus. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.

As widely reported, on Wednesday Kardashian announced she and Thompson are expecting their first child together. Kardashian uploaded a photo of her bare stomach to Instagram, and in the picture, Kardashian and Thompson can be seen holding the star’s growing baby bump. Obviously, a number of reputable outlets commented on Kardashian’s exciting news, but HollywoodLife instead chose to question the status of Kardashian’s relationship with the NBA player. The website asks in a headline, “Did Khloe Kardashian Just Confirm She’s Married To Tristan Thompson With Baby Bump Reveal Pic?”

In the accompanying report, the often discredited outlet writes, “[Kardashian] shared a gorgeous black and white photo on Instagram that showed a close-up of their hands holding on to her baby bump.” And after asserting that fans “immediately took notice” of Kardashian’s diamond-encrusted ring on “THAT finger,” the aptly nicknamed HollywoodLies then speculates if the couple “is engaged or even married already.”

What’s more, the site goes on to state that the jewelry was “impossible not to notice, since her finely manicured hand was front and center in the pregnancy announcement pic.” And to conclude its speculative piece, the webloid further purports, “These two are going to be such amazing parents! Now that we know they’re expecting, the big question is are they already husband and wife.”

Other than the diamond ring, HollywoodLies has no basis to even theorize about Kardashian being married to the basketball star. Regardless, Gossip Cop still fact-checked the website’s latest Kardashian-inspired concoction, and a family insider, who’s not authorized to comment on the record, tells us she’s neither engaged nor married to Thompson. Meanwhile, “Entertainment Tonight” also confirmed she’s not married or engaged.

Actually, if the outlet had done its research, it would have learned that the piece of jewelry is not a wedding band. In actuality, the “Good American” mogul was spotted earlier this year wearing the very same ring to an NBC Universal event in New York City. And of course, this newest tale is coming from the same website that previously claimed in a slew of stories that Kardashian and Thompson had split, so Gossip Cop is hardly surprised by its latest tall tale.
